Tapas are an integral part of the Spanish lifestyle - served in bars and cafes the length and breadth of the country. The tradition of serving tapas had a very practical beginning: the local sherry was served in a glass with a lid, or tapa, of bread or sometimes ham - apparently to keep the flies out! Nowadays, tapas range from a simple snack of fried almonds or olives to delicious savoury dishes. Whatever the ingredients, tapas are less a serious meal than an excuse to sit out in the sunshine, meet friends and talk endlessly Although tapas are traditionally eaten in bars and cafes, this comprehensive collection has been put together with the home cook in mind. The book opens with a selection of cold tapas that includes savoury snacks such as Salted Almonds, and Sweet and Salty Beetroot Crisps. Next come two chapters of sensational seafood and fish dishes, including the famous calamari, or fried squid. Meat and poultry recipes follow with delicious titbits such as Spicy Meatballs, and Skewered Lamb with Red Onion Salsa. The final chapter has the pick of vegetable and vegetarian delights and includes Tomato and Garlic Bread, and Classic Potato Tortilla. There's an informative introduction about tapas, a comprehensive glossary of Spanish terms, as well as detailed information on authentic ingredients and preparation techniques. Every recipe has been tested, each finished dish is photographed in colour, and there are step-by-step photographs of all the important stages so you can cook with confidence. Then, sit back, pour out the drinks, and sample the delights of Tapas - Spanish-style.Biografía del autor:
